The Wisconsin wolf hunting and trapping season harvest is at 221 wolves.
Zone 3 is the only zone of six statewide still open to hunting and trapping. Hunters and trappers still had more than 30 wolves to go before reaching the quota for the zone.
Zone 6, the most recent closure, closed to wolf hunting and trapping more than a month ago.
When zones are closed, the DNR announces closures by news releases, notification on their website, and on the wolf call-in number, 855-299-9653. It is the hunters’ and trappers’ responsibility to check for zone closures.
Hunters and trappers have 24 hours to report a wolf kill.
